Welcome! You must have a Deaf or Hard of Hearing student in your class this year. All hearing loss is not created equal. Some students have hearing loss in one ear (unilateral) while others have hearing loss in both ears (bilateral). Some students have mild hearing loss while others have moderate, severe, profound, or a combination. Some students use assistive listening devices such as hearing aids, BAHAs, Cochlear Implants, Personal FM Systems, and/or Classroom Soundfield Systems. Some may use American Sign Language and use an American Sign Language Interpreter. Others may benefit from a Visual Field Interpreter or one-on-one aide. And, some students may not use anything at all! Accommodations within the school environment can look very different for each unique child. This website is intended to provide you with information about hearing loss, accommodations and modifications, assistive listening devices, difficult situations for Deaf/Hard of Hearing students, and how you can help the student in your class reach her/his maximum potential!
